General Product Information

Recommended Interval Extension Products: Combustor

Interval Extension for Combustion Systems

Gas turbine customers continue to look for products to increase availability while reducing maintenance costs. GT Interval extension products have been specifically developed to address both these needs. Interval extension products were developed to extend the duration between planned maintenance inspection intervals, which can increase availability and in some cases, eliminate certain type of inspections (e.g. combustor inspections) and reduce maintenance costs.

In the example below a unit operating at 8.3k EBH turbine inspection intervals now operates at 25k EBH or 33k EBH turbine inspection intervals. This change in operation provides the following benefits:

  1. In a 100,000 hour duration, only 4 recommended scheduled outages compared to 12 outages, which can result in significant cost savings
  2. Extended duration of 25k EBH between outages which can result in improved availability
  3. Typically, interval extension products also come with advanced Siemens technologies that can help improve performance when coupled with TPU (Thermal Performance Upgrades) products

Note: EBH = Equivalent Base Load Hours, ES = Equivalent Starts, HGP = Hot Gas Inspection, MI = Major Inspection, CI = Combustor Inspection

Key recommended interval extension products: Compressor, Combustor and Turbine

The table below the key recommended interval extension products on the 3 main core focus areas: Compressor, Combustor and Turbine.

The following section highlights some of the available recommended interval extension options for the combustor section. These upgrades can be implemented during a CI or HGP or MI.

For turbine and compressor interval extension products, please refer to the following:
